It's time for another awards roundup!
Every year, there are several awards presented throughout the country, mostly at notable comic conventions. Here is a list of these award-winning titles that may not appear as an award winner on purchasing services. Even being nominated for these prestigious awards is an honor, so all of these books on the nominees list are quality titles that you can consider purchasing for your collection. As always, check for age relevance before purchasing! I've also linked my reviews when possible.
